Verdict

THE BIG STORY shaped nicely under a considerate ride when runner-up on debut and the third and fourth from that race both scored on their hurdling debuts, so he's taken to get off the mark at the likely expense of Fissa and Enniskerry, though the participation of current reserve Prevaricate could markedly change the complexion of the race.
